I’m Sorry | DONNA Karan Apologises For Siding with Harvey Weinstein

How do we display ourselves, how do we present ourselves as women, what are we asking? Are we asking for it, you know, by presenting all the sensuality and all the sexuality?…It’s not Harvey Weinstein. You look at everything all over the world today, you know, and how women are dressing and, you know, what they’re asking by just presenting themselves the way they do. What are they asking for? Trouble.”
Donna Karan had uttered these words at the CineFashion Film Awards in LA while contributing to the rape allegations measured against Harvey Weinstein, American film producer and former film studio executive and co-founder of Miramax.
Well I guess she didn’t understand the gravity or what way the world is facing right about now especially for one who has a brand that is so strong on women empowerment.  Maybe it’s all a facade or maybe she wasn’t just thinking or got carried away. However she got her fans lovers of DKNY , buyers and a lot of people upset .
She has since apologised after suffering  backlash and a request to boycott her brand from fans for victim blaming, she had this to say in her interview with WWD ;
“I heard a little bit of rumor. It was not like I had heard the entire story,” she said. “It was like a complete rumor that I had heard and I didn’t want to comment on it. So I kind of weaved my way around it. I know Georgina Chapman, Weinstein’s wife and principal designer of the Marchesa brand, I know Harvey, and I didn’t think it was appropriate for me to be commenting on it, so I wiggled my way out of it. However, what I did comment on was sexual harassment.”
She further more put her comments down to fatigue and fear saying;
“I was exhausted, I was tired and when  it came back to me, I was shocked that I even said this myself. Because I was preparing in my mind what I was going to say in the theatre,” she said. “And I just went off on something that I shouldn’t have, and I apologize profusely. I regret it so strongly. I think every woman who knows me, and I have worked for them in all sizes and all shapes, all I do want is women being free to express themselves. And that has nothing to do with being disrespected, molested and harassed. Absolutely not.”
Please remember there is no excuse for rape , DON’T VICTIM BLAME !
